    Default Studying online with Open Colleges?

    Good afternoon all,

    Just wondering if anyone has studies online with Open Colleges?
    I have 2 DD's aged 6 years and 4.5 years and i'm currently working part time (4 nights a week approx 23hours total) and was thinking about studying with Open Colleges due to flexibility etc and doing my Diploma of Accounting.
    Does anyone else study online?
    Is it ok to manage with family/work/household commitments?
    has anyone done a diploma of accounting online?
    do you feel you had enough support by the education institution by studying online?

    Any info or thoughts would be great
    Thanks

    Doing my studies through OUA and is it tough but I do like the flexibility however, you really do need be motivated otherwise you will fall behind.

    Hi I am currently studying thru open collages & have had nothing but trouble with them. They don't follow up on things don't mark books unless you tell them that you have sent it for marking & they lost paper work of mine & wanted me to send it to them again, they are way over price for there options. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but what I have had trouble with someone else may not.

    Oh dear that sounds like an awful experience, who are you studying through? I am with Open Universities Australia and have had no problems at all.
